Amazon Look Inside related question

Dear CS community and experts,

 

I have just completed the publishing of an academic book for my father in law. He was delighted but appalled to see how many pages Amazon is allowing via 'Look Inside'.  It appears to be at least a 1/3 and possibly as much as a 1/2 of the complete book.  In the past, our experience was the first few pages and the back page.  What do you think has happened?

 

- Is this determined by Amazon?

- Do CreateSpace set the parameters during release?

- Can it be changed after the event? Who to ask?

 

Etc etc.

 

PLEASE HELP!!!  To have half a 300 page book online is a joke.

 

Sincerely,

 

Howard Smith

You can try contacting Amazon through Author Central, but Look Inside is handled by a different department, so they may pass you off.
